Default Best tie off method for bows

What is your favorite way to tie your bows off, assuming you do?

Regular string, Embroidery floss? Organza? My cording is not working.
I usually sew but wanted to try and only had a stetchy type cording.

What do you have the best results with?

i use like a heavy dute embroidery thread and my gator bite. i love it. my fingers get pretty sore if i go too long without making bows. pulling the string tight makes em kinda raw. but it works great!!!

have you tried the organza? it can go really tight, doesn't hurt your fingers, and it doesn't show behind your center. i am really for it!!

I know! The organza ripped thru both pinkies after I made a ton of bows one night. It was worth it though!
